I didn't like the layout, lots of nooks and crannies. Beautiful building and grounds. Besides a lake with lots of wildlife. pleasant walk ways with pretty views. Parks and gardens close by is a plus.

Conventional, dull collections. Very little of the art is challenging or provocative. Very little context to the art is provided. Some of the collections seem random and disjointed. A couple of the exhibits would be more at home in a village art fair. The Art...More

This museum's collections are not my favorites but others may find them interesting. I was most disappointed in how they jammed all of what I call traditional art into a couple rooms.

A lot of different pieces that were amazing. There were quite a few areas of the museum that were unavailable due to new exhibits being put in, hopefully I will be able to see them in the future.

It's a nice place in an park by a small lake, but the collection is third rate. I have seen some traveling shows there that were worth it, but nothing this time.
